Tales of mama's boy

Yesterday our hosts at Classic 105 were talking about mamas' boys. A certain caller called in to say that she knew of a lady who lives with her 47-year old son. Mwalimu was of the opinion that such mothers are messing up with boys such that they (the 'boys') become undatable and unmarriable. So they were asking whether such mothers are over-spoiling their sons.

My Human Opinion

I totally agree with Mwalimu Kingangi on this one. Four-seven years, and still at home!! Even someone half that age should not still be living with their parents. Woi! It is indeed sad seeing a man refusing to grow up.

There is no excuse this man or such like him can give. At the very, very least, he should move out of the 'main' house to the 'extension' or SQ.

Ummarriable? Consider this. If a man can't take care of himself, who will he take of?

My Biblical Opinion

Jacob is the first guy that pops to mind when I think of a mama's boy from the Bible.
Genesis 25:27-28
27 The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was content to stay at home among the tents. 28 Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
However, do not, even for an instant, assume that Jacob was a sissy. Yes, he liked cooking and hanging around the kitchen. But he physically wrestled with God. And could have won if God didn't zap his hip.

Anyway, the Bible is very clear from the beginning how things should go down.
Genesis 2:24
That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
I need not say more. Man, go find a wife.
